Law professor and environmental activist, Gus Speth, hit the nail on the head when he observed that science cannot solve climate change that threatens life on Earth.
“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”
Which leads me to an essay from Greater Good Magazine, "Why the world needs an empathy revolution." It may be a long overdue antidote to the selfishness, greed and apathy that Speth warns may bring us low on the climate front.
